A brief recap of Friday's Sandusky Bay Conference football games:
Perkins 55, Buckeye 20
The Perkins football team gave the Firelands Regional Medical Center stadium's scoreboard -- and the cheerleaders -- a first-half workout Friday in the second game on the turf.
The Pirates put up some big numbers that will be hard to beat on the way to blistering Medina Buckeye, 55-20 and move to 2-1 entering the Sandusky Bay Conference season next week.
The cheerleaders had push-ups after each touchdown -- 55 when the final first-half points were recorded.
Eight different players were involved in the scoring in which Perkins produced all 55 of its points before the half, and amassed 329 yards in offense -- 240 on the ground and 89 in the air.
Coach Jason Ziegler's club scored on every possession, and added another when junior linebacker Tony Didion picked off a Buckeye pass and ran 19 yards untouched into the end zone for the Pirates' seventh score of the half to make it a 49-0 count with 3:50 still remaining before intermission.
Ziegler gave his starters the second half off and the Bucks scored all of their points in the third quarter before their regulars left the field.
Edison 35, Wellington 20
For every strong drive Edison put together in the first half, the Chargers made an equal amount of mistakes.
It didn't look to be going any better in the first five minutes of the second half, but the Chargers turned up their intensity and managed to score three touchdowns in the third quarter en route to a 35-20 win over Wellington.
Margaretta 47, Brookside 8
Margaretta defeated Brookside 47-8 Friday, as Tyler Hilton completed 5 of 8 passes, for 127 yards and two touchdown passes.
The Polar Bears led 35-0 at halftime, and outrushed the Cardinals 379-152.
Austin Moore had two receiving touchdowns for Margaretta, while Hunter Dye recorded three receptions and Ben Singer had eight carries for 71 yards rushing and one TD.
Derrick Abbott had 11 carries for 90 yards and one touchdown, while Stephen Freeh had three carries for 90 yards and two touchdowns.
Hunter Kinchey had a fumble recovery.
Oak Harbor 28, Eastwood 21
At Oak Harbor, the Rockets came back from behind Eastwood twice to defeat the Eagles 28-21 Friday.
Eastwood got on the board first with a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter to go into the second quarter with a 14-0 lead, but Oak Harbor came back with a pair of its own to knot the score 14-14 at halftime.
Both touchdowns were Austin Wiegand to A.J. Cecil combinations -- the first a 48-yard pass, the second a 55-yard pass.
However, the Eagles came back to take the lead with 10:07 remaining in the third quarter, when Eagles' quarterback Jake Schmeltz completed a 45-yard pass to Blake Kohring.
Mark Konieczny then put away a 13-yard run with 7:41 remaining in the third to once again pull even, 21-21.
The Rockets again found the endzone in the fourth quarter, as Wiegand's 7-yard pass to Ben Guzman with 8:54 remaining in the game proved to be the winning touchdown.
Genoa 49, Port Clinton 7
At Genoa, the Comets defeated Port Clinton 49-7 in non-conference action Friday. The Redskins fall to 1-2 and travel to Edison to begin Sandusky Bay Conference play next week.
